    NavyMA2, if you haven't taken any "civilian" tests before, pay attention to the time you are allotted for each question. That's what got me the first time I took a civil service test. Navy tests used to allow a long time to answer, CBP I think it is around 2 minutes per question.

    Read the guides and you should be fine. They will add your military score to the final scores as well (5 points if you're a 5 point vet etc) Good luck.

        I wouldn't count on the info from the anti polygraph coz ppl who wrote obviously failed it, and it may cause the applicant to have conflicted ideas in their heads that might affect their performance in the actual test. When my examiner called me for the test, he advised me not to look at poly info online and that's why I couldn't and I didn't look at till after I was done and passed.

          What do you mean? You don't have an "exact" day and time yet? And why reschedule?

            I used the study guides that are provided on their website. I really only practiced the math questions since math was never my strong suit...

              I know about the source, but a Google search will pretty much reveal the same information.
              wow i sure hope they allow me to explain myself after i answer. My answer to most of those questions are yes. But thing is, i lied a lot back in elementary/middle school. All of them can be seen as harmless. Like i would lie about homework or something like that.

              • ForzaMilan, Thank you....I took the CBP test September and I totally panicked..lol maybe because it was my first civilian test. I went back and started changed answers seconded guessing my self and totally lost focus...I did not pass but I know I stuggled with the math but I know I did superb with the reading comprehension i some how just got really nervous with the logic and reasoning. I am studying and taking my time now so i hope i get it this time.

                • No problem, I remember failing my first POST exam after the navy because of the timing issue. And I was out of practice. Been doing better after that, with some studying and practice so you should be good to go. And turn on your PMs so you can receive private messages

                  • My CASS updated today with a check mark for the Interview. Now have 3 check marks. Still waiting on med-review to clear and "Pre-Employment forms" will not be green checked till end of the process (according to MHC). Just waiting on BI email to begin the (from what I hear) hardest part of the application.

                          Yeah the BI is a bit of a pain in the *** to do

                          Tomorrow I'm getting the prints done and turning everything in before my 30th due date.

                          Were almost there man!
